Zermino honored as one of the state's best
Submitted By Don Williams, Ohlone men's soccer head coach
During the month of October, Daniel Zermino was moved up to striker and proceeded to score four goals and tally three assists, helping Ohlone College win three of their last four matches after starting the year winless in 14 games.
For his accomplishments, the Renegades freshman striker was honored by the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) with an honorable mention for the Athlete of the Month.
The CCCAA Athlete of the Month program is coordinated with the California Community College Sports Information Association (CCCSIA). CCCAA represents over 72 schools throughout the state, representing more than 1,500 male soccer players.
"This is the second time this season that one of our players has been recognized by the state," said Head Coach Don Williams. "We have not been as successful in the win-loss column as we would have liked, but the recognition that our men are receiving I believe reflects the progress we have made as a team. I am beaming with pride right now."
Zermino was a standout athlete from James Logan High School in Union City, where he anchored the Colts' defense and served as team captain his senior year. He is currently second on Ohlone in scoring.
